Good Books For New Puppies

Teresa from Alaska recently wrote to Happy Dog Land asking us to recommend training books to help with her two new adorable puppies (pictured below).

We asked two well respected and trusted Certified Pet Dog Trainers (CPDT) trainers Lynn Brezina and Jamie Damato for suggestions. Here is their list:
  • Positive Puppy Training Works by Joel Walton
  • Before and After Getting Your Puppy by Dr. Ian Dunbar
  • Puppy Primer by Patricia McConnell
  • The Puppy Whisperer by Paul Owens
Of course, your home work along with a well recommended puppy class that teaches positive reinforcement rather than punishment-based training will start your new pup's life off on the right paw!
